Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage by Jeff Goldberg / Esto
The influence of African music is remarkably wide-ranging. Whether the genre is gospel, blues, jazz, Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, hip-hop, rock, or pop, so much of the music we celebrate today is rooted in the melodies, rhythms, and spirit of Africa. The African continent’s musical reach extends to America and around the world by informing, inspiring, and enlivening all it touches. Curated by Angélique Kidjo, this concert explores the extraordinary impact African music has made on every part of our musical landscape.
